Entry details; CAN Tinned CANs

Create art from old tin cans!

Ever wondered what to do with all those old tin cans or aluminum drinks cans?

Turn them into stunning art works and enter Creative Arts Napier’s latest Exhibition and Auction:

‘Tinned CANs’

Open to all – professional and non-professional artists of any age. There will be a selection process to ensure originality and creativity.

Guide lines:
Build, decorate, paint or display in an unusual and original way, something made from (clean!) tin or aluminium cans.
Inspire, horrify, please, surprise, amuse, challenge, revolt, fascinate!
But please make sure there are no sharp edges.
